Kingston University offers you:

The safest and happiest place to live in London

Kingston upon Thames is only 25 minutes from central London and has been consistently reported as the safest borough in London (Metropolitan Police, 2013) and the happiest place to live in Greater London (Rightmove, 2013)! Located on the River Thames in an affluent part of south-west London, it's no surprise Kingston is the ideal student location.

Producing the highest number of graduate start-ups

Kingston encourages and nurtures entrepreneurship and creativity, producing the highest number of graduate start-up companies than any other UK university (Higher Education Business and Community Interaction Survey, 2012).

Modern resources and cutting-edge facilities

We've recently spent more than £30million on new resources and facilities and plan to spend, in total, £125million during the next 10 years, so that our students benefit from the best.

One of the most diverse and multicultural universities

With students from 150 countries, representing nations across the world, Kingston is a truly multicultural university and proud of it. We welcome around 1,500 new international students every year.

Career and workplace-focused learning

All our courses are developed with your career in mind, so that you get the most up-to-date information and gain the relevant work-related skills needed for the modern work environment. Many of our courses have been developed with professional organisations and carry professional accreditation.

A supportive and welcoming community

From before you leave your home country, until after you graduate, Kingston University offers all students a wide range of support services, ranging from support with studies and English language, to CV preparation and job fairs, to arriving in the UK, to visas and immigration, to health and counselling, to religion and spirituality and more.
